This Life: Patrick deWitt & Lydia Kiesling

Winningstad Theatre 1111 SW Broadway Ave, Portland, OR

A study of character studies. From Patrick deWitt comes the story of Bob Comet, a man who has lived his life through and for literature, unaware that his own experience is a poignant and affecting narrative in itself. Lydia Kiesling's new novel is a propulsive and challenging story about class, power, politics, and desire told through the life of one woman—her social milieu, her romances, her unarticulated wants. Moderated by Daniel Nieh.
